Ladies Night Out, Roaring ’20s-style, this Friday

Merchants on Bay Street have special promotions planned, organizers say

PORT ORCHARD — It will be the “bees knees” from one end of downtown to the other in Port Orchard on Friday as a Roaring ’20s-themed Ladies Night Out takes place in retail and dining businesses around town.

Shoppers downtown between 4 and 8 p.m. are encouraged to check in at the Port Orchard Market “Speakeasy” to receive free boas, beads and free raffle tickets they can use to enter giveaways, according to the sponsoring Port Orchard Bay Street Association (POBSA).

A scavenger hunt flyer and Ladies Night Out map will also be available at the Port Orchard Market, 715 Bay St., Revival at 702 Bay St. and Irene’s Photo & Design Studio, 837 Bay St. The map will indicate participating businesses that have sales, discounts, promotions, and food and drink specials that evening, POBSA’s Coreen Haydock said.

The scavenger hunt flyer will have 10 photos that will include scenes from around 1920s’ Port Orchard. Haydock said scavenger hunt participants must find the corresponding items scattered around Bay Street and write down the number on the flyer, then bring it back to the market to be entered into a prize drawing.

Other Ladies Night Out activities will take place on Friday, sponsors said, and will be detailed in information on the POBSA website at
